About the Author

Brenda spent early years on a ranger station on the wild and scenic Selway River in the panhandle of Idaho, where Miss Calvert taught her to read in a one-room schoolhouse. When her family moved over the mountains to Montana, Brenda swam with her brother and sister in new rivers. The Big Sky still draws her home.


Brenda studied Camus and poetry in college and learned to love the written word in all its glorious forms. As a public school reading specialist, she turned students onto the code, the word, and the story.

Brenda lives in Oregon with a fine little dog on a pretty little street with very fine neighbors. She likes to hike, bike, ski, and garden in the lush Pacific Northwest. Children—neighbors, students, Brenda’s kids and their kids, remain an important part of her life.


"In stepping out of post-divorce grief and into hope and abundance, this author's approach to life is contagious. But it's not through denial of that grief that she grows. Instead, she bravely takes us through her pain and carries us into her next beautiful hour. I love the humor, the honesty, and the promise."

-Laura Munson, New York Times bestselling author and founder of the acclaimed Haven Writing Retreats

"Embedded in Johnson's stories is a map to living with the sharpness of deep loss. Despite the poignancy, Johnson's perceptive portrayals of everyday human experience charm and delight."

-Cherie Bynum, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

"This beautiful memoir reveals how "get over it" happens on one's own terms, in day-to-day fashioning life with care and humor. Like a Haiku master, the author uses keen descriptions of nature and compassionate observations of human behavior. A pure joy to read."

-Sally Green, co-author and artist of The Illuminated Hafiz with Coleman Barks, Robert Bly, and Michael Green
